At 211 degrees, water is hot.
At 212 degrees, it boils.
And with boiling water, comes steam.
And with steam, you can power a train.
One degree. Applying one extra degree of temperature to water means the difference between something that is simply very hot and something that generates enough force to power a machine – a beautifully uncomplicated metaphor that ideally should feed our every endeavor – consistently pushing us to make the… Continue

Hey All, I want to share an amazing thing that just happened to me. So I am riding in the Big Bike Fundraiser for Heart and Stroke on Monday 16th. I left it pretty late to begin my fundraising... I sent out an event on FaceBook to all of my connections asking for help to reach my goal of 100$. After I was done inviting my whole friend list, I go back to the fundraiser homepage, and it says 100$ is reached! At first I thought there was something wrong with the site, it seemed impossible to me!!… Continue

Hi - I had a great convo with Craig Silverman [Hireability] about this last week. I'd like to get others' feedback too:
I see many ads for sourcing, virtual recruiting, researchers, etc... I'd love to start a following of Virtual Business Development people and have Sourcers that Research Leads and Clients [companies & decision makers] over and above sourcing new candidates.
How would you build a strong, national, virtual team of business developers / researchers /… Continue

No need to reinvent the something that others might have already done. Please comment on your experiences with some of the newer software applications. Do you have any special requirements criteria that you have already documented? I am just getting started and have only seen a few but would be happy to share any of my experiences thus far with those in the same boat.

I hope you can help me here. The other day I set off for work leaving my husband in the house watching the TV as usual. I hadn't gone more than a mile down the road when my engine conked out and the car shuddered to a halt.
I walked back home to get my husband's help. When I got home I couldn't believe my eyes. He was in our bedroom with the neighbor lady. I am 32, my husband is 34, and we have been married for twelve years. When I confronted him, he broke down and… Continue

I had a breakfast interview with a candidate at IHOP this week. I went back yesterday because I thought I had left my glasses behind. Turns out I didn't forget my glasses, but I did forget to pay my bill. It was my first "dine and dash" interview. Give it a try sometime. :-)

Yahoo! Google - Game Theory and Ontology
Not quite sure how I feel about the big Yahoo! announcement
. To my mind, the deal raises uncomfortable ontological issues about just who Yahoo! is. If they’re just another publisher, then I guess it might make sense to outsource ad serving to maximize CPMs but as a tech platform, it seems to be a big concession of… Continue

what is thinking?
Thinking is not just a process of linking words together to impress fools.
But a process of diving deep into the ocean of conciousness
In search of gems of truth to enlighten the sinking souls

Tonic for Mind
One who thinks He is going to die
Is better than the one who thinks
That he is going to live.
For the first will struggle to change, but the other by chance may change.
Body is a tool to keep the mind cool
Never to be used like a bull to destroy peace and
happiness of those who work under its rule

Fear is only a thunder cloud
Making an empty sound
The force of wind
Moves it round and round
And frightens only those
Who are not sound.

Remedy for Fear
Fear of death makes one forget the joys of life.
Be cheerful you are the children of immortal bliss.
Death is only for the body it is not for you.
Man is mortal so long as he is conscious of the body.
Transcend the idea of body, becomes immortal he at once.

what is depression?
Depression is not a disease
But it only a fallen wave
In the ocean of conciousness
Only to rise again with great
Force to lift us up and up
Till we reach the shore safely.
